Relief, angst for UIL realignments

By GREG WEBB

Amidst inevitable sighs of relief (and angst), the University Interscholastic League has released the plan for the district world football and basketball teams will live in the next couple of years. Parker County schools saw a first-time alignments, a rewind of the same district alignment and varying degrees in between. 

At the UIL realignment announcement venues, Monday morning, football coaches began the work of filling out their 10-game schedules with non-district contests. Weatherford, Aledo and Millsap will have three pre-district games to slate, while Brock and Springtown will each need to find five non-district opponents.

Football — 2014-16

Millsap goes west — The Bulldogs were plucked from what is left of the Mildred, Rice, Blooming Grove and Rio Vista grouping (now District 9) and moved westward, facing a whole new set of opponents, including state champion Cisco. Combined opponents’ record from 2013: 60-27.

Class 3A/Division II - Region 1 - District 2 — Cisco (16-0), Eastland (13-1), Henrietta (7-5), Holliday (2-8), Jacksboro (8-3), Nocona (6-5), WF City View (6-5), Millsap (2-8).

Brock outlook positive — The Eagles will still be lining up plenty of contests “on their own,” as the smallish district will require just five games. Brock enters District 4, Division 1 as the only squad sporting a winning record from last season. Combined opponent’s record from 2013: 16-37. 

Class 3A/Division I - Region 1 - District 4 — Breckenridge (4-7), Bowie (4-7), Boyd (4-7), Paradise (1-9), Ponder (3-7), Brock (8-2).

Nearly a push for Pojo— Alvarado replaces Mineral Wells, with everyone else standing pat from the former District 6. Kennedale, despite a dip last year, still looks to be the cream of the crop. Combined opponent’s record from 2013: 23-32

Class 4A/Division 1 - Region 2 - District 5 — Alvarado (6-5), FW Diamond Hill-Jarvis (0-10), Kennedale (7-5), Castleberry (4-7), Lake Worth (6-5), Springtown (6-6). 

Looking tougher for Aledo, but — Everman provides a bit of an upgrade for the district, as Aledo and Granbury migrate south from Fort Worth. The shuffle pits Burleson, Cleburne, Granbury and Crowley in the second tier. Bearcats still lonely at the top, will settle for early and late-season challenges. Combined opponent’s record from 2013: 41-34
